Bronny James discharged from Hospital after Cardiac Arrest

Just three days ago, the 18-year-old son of LeBron James, Bronny James went into cardiac arrest. Now he has been discharged from the hospital and is at home resting.

The consulting cardiologist, Dr. Merije Chukumerije said in a statement that James was “successfully treated for a sudden cardiac arrest.” Chukumerije gave credit to “the swift and effective response by the USC athletics’ medical staff.” Bronny James is an incoming freshman at USC, where he was participating in practice on Monday when the incident happened.

“He arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center fully conscious, neurologically intact and stable,” Chukumerije said. “Mr. James was cared for promptly by highly-trained staff and has been discharged home, where he is resting. Although his workup will be ongoing, we are hopeful for his continued progress and are encouraged by his response, resilience, and his family and community support.”

LeBron posted to X, formerly known as Twitter, a statement that his family is “safe and healthy” in a message of gratitude. Bronny James is considered to be a highly-touted prospect and has had the media’s attention since he was a Freshman in High School. Deservedly so, as the son of arguably the greatest basketball player of all time.

Depending on the severity of the cardiac arrest, Bronny James may need several weeks to a few months or longer to fully recuperate. So, the expectation should be for him not to continue basketball activity for a little bit. Though, the fact that he is home and resting three days after the incident is good news.

The 18-year-old arrived at USC for his freshman year last month, with the team set for an exhibition tour in Croatia and Greece. The 6-foot-3 Guard was ranked No. 20 in the ESPN 100 for the 2023 class.
